do we essentially go home and say to them you can't because you are from yemen and all people from yemen are terrorists. it is a horrible message to send the people of human. and completely unjustified. the other issue is there are mostly from countries where it is not safe for them to be returned because the government will treat them as badly as the united states treats them or worse. there are still a few prisoners in guantanamo, the weakest from china, the chinese government. there are some in guantanamo cleared for release. and still held. i don't actually understand why they are still held. they were under the dictator ben all the who has been disposed. one issue needs to be looked at this why specific people are held, and one that many of us have been campaigning on for many years is the last british resident in guantanamo and the united states government has clearly said they want to release him. he is on a list of 65 who need to be released in september but the first time the united states government said the names and identities of 65 of these agencies. we have it printed
. in yemen, al qaeda in the arabian peninsula continues to feel the effects of the death last year of its leader of external operations who was response will for planning and directing terrorist attacks against the united states. nevertheless, they continue to be al qaeda's most active affiliate's and continue to seek the opportunity to strike our homeland. we therefore continue to support the government of yemen its efforts against al qaeda which is being forced to fight against the territory it needs to plan a tax beyond yemen. in north and west africa, another al qaeda affiliate continue its efforts to destabilize governments and engaging kidnapping of western citizens for rents and activities designed to fund its terrorist agenda. in nigeria, we are monitoring closely the emergence of a group that appears to be aligning itself with al qaeda's violent agenda as increasingly looking to attack western interests in nigeria in addition to nigerian government targets. more broadly, al qaeda's killing of innocents, mostly muslim men, women and children, has badly tarnished its image and appe

of their citizenship. because we do not trust the yemen government to be responsible. part of the justification for the drone program is that we have the consent of the many government to conduct the operation. they're not trustworthy when it comes to taking detainee's. it seems we're a bit hypocritical in our views of yemen. as i said, i think guantanamo remains a stain on our reputation. recently, congress passed a bill that prohibits granting visas to members of the russian government that refused to human rights the violations. president obama signed it. in retaliation, the russian government passed a bill that prohibits americans from adopting russian children, and president clinton, before signing it at a news conference, was quite angry about the bill that our government passed. he said -- who is the u.s. to condemn us about human rights when they have at guantanamo? it remains a blight on our reputation and one that we waste and offer -- an awful lot of money and credibility to keep open. it seems 11 years into it, it has become moribund, by god, we said we were going to do it and we're

in pakistan, somalia and yemen are covert cia operations performed without putting american lives on the line. singer: the technology has enabled us to set aside some of the risk factors of sending a pilot in harm's way. so, it's meant that we've conducted a lot more strikes that would have been more problematic if we were using manned systems. narrator: the u.s. claims drones have decimated al qaeda's top leadership while causing limited civilian casualties, but the facts are hard to come by. shuja nawaz: we know fairly well how many strikes are occurring. what we don't know is the details-- who the targets were whether they were actually eliminated, or whether some other people were killed-- because verification is very difficult. narrator: there are no fully reliable counts of civilian deaths, but some critics claim that as many as 30% of those killed in the broader drone wars are civilians and that the strikes turn people against the u.s. and violate international law. after more than ten years of attacks, the u.s. officially acknowledged its use of drones
, an american citizen living in yemen. the white house denied that request for purposes of national security. the judge approved the administration's right to keep that information classified, but still questioned the drone program, writing, "i can find no way around the thicket of laws and precedents that effectively allow the executive brarchg of our government to proclaim as perfectly lawful certain actions that seem on their face incompatible with our constitution and laws, while keeping the reasons for their conclusion a secret." the judge went on to write in her ruling, "the alice in wonderland nature of this pronouncement is not lost on me." let us take a look down the rabbit hole. joining us now from washington is former state department spokesman and former assistant secretary of state p.j. crowley. p.j., always great to have you on the program. >> hello, alex. >> let's talk about the use of drones, which is something that has remained largely outside of debate until recently. i wonder to what degree you think john brennan's potential appointment as head of the cia brings this topic
sent from yemen to chicago as the ultimate destination. fortunately, because of some outstanding international cooperation, intelligence work by a foreign security or service, we were given the tracking numbers or for those two devices, or for those two packages. one was on fedex, one was on ups, and both of them had computer printers that had toner cartridges in them that were actually bombs. we got the tracking numbers, we provided those to foreign security officials in the united kingdom. they went and found those packages, opened them up and both said, no, no device here. we said, no, this is really good intelligence, go back. on the second occasion in inspection, they found it. on the third, the other incident it took them three times to find it. is so what we're seeing is that there is a mast orer bomb maker in yemen who is training others. this bomb maker made not only those two devices i'm talking about, the underwear device is the first one, also used a similar type of device to use his younger brother as a suicide bomber to try to kill a saudi official. fast forward now
vinson's 9/11 -- 9/11, the ft. hood shooting was under the influence of a man in yemen. are we saying we will stop intercepting communications? >> that is not the issue. the issue is whether or not there has to be checks and balances. no one is saying in a kind of surveillance is off of the table. the question is whether or not there is card launch -- carte blanch to do it. >> a judicial function in court has to give a yay or nay. having an open court decide whether or not a person can be under surveillance. >> when the director of national intelligence said there has been a violation of law, how many americans have been impacted? >> when are they going to report them? >> one other report -- point we might want to consider is that there never has been any evidence given to justify this level of secrecy or this level of removal of rights and freedoms that have been constitutionally protected. >> this is important for our national security. there is no publicly available information. this has been in place since right after 9/11 in some form. it collected information that was not attainabl

in afghanistan and spread to iraq and is in yemen and pakistan and other places. we tend to understand that when soldiers go to war, they die in service to our country and we're grateful that they do that. once the conflict ends, we're left with fragile states with challenging situations and poor, weak governments and that's the construct that chris stevens willingly walked into because he understood that as we see a libya or egypt or tunisia or yemen move forward, the united states has to be there. while there were mistakes made and underestimations, we can't reduce it to zero. chris stevens understood the situation in benghazi better than anyone else and decided to be there and we should be grateful for his service and his sacrifice. >> the biggest mistake was putting susan rice on that sunday morning on television with what turned out to be wrong intelligence when they didn't need to go that fast. that's probably as much the media's fault for demanding that they do that kind of thing. i think everyone is culpable here. let's take a break and we'll come back and talk about two more hot button
